Global Young Innovators Initiative
It is our mission, as a team, to be the change that will make a difference in lives around the globe. We pledge to not only give our time, but our talent as well, to any project we take on. We are Team Parks of the irrigation farming business. We together would like to reach outside our community and lend a helping hand to a less fortunate part of the world. As a team, we would like to assist Muhammadu Shehu, an irrigation farmer in Nigeria, succeed in his farming business. Our team plans on doing so by creating a method to produce a multitude of crops and goods throughout Muhammadu’s farmland for his community. Muhammadu makes a great salary each harvest for the area he lives in, and is currently trying to expand his farming operation. In addition to his great salary, Muhammadu would like to add stem grafting to fruit trees, which he has never done before. With this teams help, we plan to provide solutions for the trials he faces on the farm. Removing pests from his crops is Muhammadu’s main priority. To do this, we plan on adding multiple different pesticides. Along with Muhammadu’s pest problem, he is also trying find a way to reuse his soil. In order to be efficient in this process he will need to till the land after the harvest and by adding 30 tons of manure per acre he will be able to increase the organic matter of his crops essentially by 5.5%. As we also plan to improve his yield by implementing more nutrients to his crops, as well as helping him collaborate with other farmers that are not experiencing flooding or drought related issues, we have a trench theory that will be able to become successful with time.
Along with assisting Muhammadu improve his farmland, we plan on creating business cards, posters, and a name for his business to help advertise his selling of crops. By adding three dimensional models to our designs it will give our partner, Muhammadu, a better visual of our plans to increase his income even more in order to expand. In the end, we are looking at a cost over two hundred dollars, but plan on making this solution approximately 5 steps to success. Starting off, we will use the money Muhammadu was granted, and eventually continue our steps to success off of solely the profit Muhammadu will make.
See how each day at the summit we are gaining new skills to assist our business partner and transform lives.
